Corn Casserole

Corn Casserole

I think this is one of my favorite side dishes. It is so easy to put together and it is so good. My mother used to make something similar when I was younger and I have her recipe for it, however, I wanted to create my own version. Her recipe required shucking fresh corn. Not everyone has fresh corn and almost always has a can of corn or a bag of frozen corn in their freezer. Why not use that instead of fresh corn, right?

So, here is what you will need.


5 Cups Corn (canned or frozen)
1 green Bell Pepper – Diced small
1/2 stick Butter – I use unsalted
3/4 Cup Milk
Salt and pepper – to taste
2 Scallions – thinly sliced
1 Jalapeno – seeded and diced fine (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350*. Grease or butter a 9×9 or an 8×12-inch baking dish.
  2. Add all the ingredients to the dish and stir to combine well.
  3. Place in your preheated oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

  • If you are using canned corn, be sure to drain the liquid from the can, rinse it, and then drain again.
  • If you are using frozen corn, Be sure to let the corn thaw completely and drain any excess water from the corn.
  • The jalapenos are optional but we love heat so I typically add them if I have them. Feel free to leave them out. You can use red pepper flakes instead if you have them and like a bit of heat.
  • If you are using fresh-shucked corn, Blanch the corn for 2 minutes in hot water. Then drain completely. They will finish cooking in the oven.
  • For a bit of extra flavor, cook up some bacon and add to the mixture before serving and stir. I do this from time to time and it is so good.
